Systema Knife Seminar by Ed Glimme

Join Ed Glimme at a seminar where he will teach Systema knife work and share his framework of martial arts. Ed is a practitioner of Russian and Japanese martial arts and is a Shihan of Hoshin Roshi Ryu. In addition to owning his gym, Ethereal Gateless Barrier, in La Crosse, WI, he also does private security and executive protection.

Systema is a Russian martial art that incorporates open hand, grappling, knife, and firearm training. Its core concept is relaxation of the body and calmness of the mind, with both ready to spring into action. Systema is used by Russian special forces and is increasing in popularity in police and security forces around the world.

Ed has also built his own framework of concepts, present in nature and the world, that are integral to martial arts. His framework starts at understanding one’s self, progresses through the concepts of duality, trinity, and pentarchic elements, and culminates in the understanding of the strategy of a martial art. Experience his framework through the lens of Systema, and learn how it exists in your own art.
